Chevrolet has officially announced that they will showcase the Corvette Stingray Convertible at next month’s Geneva Auto Show. According to Susan Docherty, the managing director and president of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe, it makes sense to unveil the Convertible at Geneva since the Stingray will be the face of Chevy world over. She further elaborated that the Corvette has been admired world over and even in countries where it was never on sale. With her comments and GM’s inclination of building the Chevy brand across Europe, it makes sense to unveil the car in Geneva.
Other than the Convertible’s unveiling, Chevrolet will also debut the Spark EV for the first time in Europe.
